Blog Kiosk: 6/23/2017 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

This series against the Mets was ridiculous. The Dodgers set a new franchise record when they collectively hit 15 homers during the four-game set. The last of which scored the game winning run to help the Dodgers sweep the Mets. It was hit by Joc Pederson on the very first pitch of the seventh inning. I think it's safe to say, after a crushing collision in the outfield a month ago, that he is on the mend. Per Cary Osborne at Dodger Insider:
“I think he’s getting there, and the one gauge for me is seeing his plate discipline,” said Dodger manager Dave Roberts. “And over the last 10 games he’s not offering at everything moving forward. So when balls are out of the strike zone he’s doing a good job taking. And he’s getting on base at an incredible rate right now. The next piece is when he gets balls in the strike zone to do what he did tonight.”

Vintage Jackie Robinson Photos at RMY Auction

Featured here are a couple fantastic vintage photos I came across at a recent RMY Auction that I wanted to pass long. As you can see, they both highlight Jackie Robinson. Above is the multi-faceted athlete on the hardwood floor. (auction link)

The auction house had speculated that it is from 1950 and is related to the filming of the biopic "The Jackie Robinson Story." It sold for a lofty $943.05. A princely sum, no doubt.

The below photo is just as fantastic -- even though it tells a rather sad story if your a Dodger fan. (auction link) It sold for a far more reasonable $78.77.
